Tortellini Sausage Soup

First of all, today I would finally like to introduce you to the newest addition to the Crumbs and Chaos family.  Our sweet Addison Marie was born just over 7 weeks ago and is doing great!  Adjusting to this new life with a little girl in the family has been quite an experience for Mom, Dad, and her older brothers.  Luckily, things are returning to normal and my time spent in the kitchen is increasing once again!

Which brings me to the second thing… this amazing Tortellini Sausage Soup!  It is no secret that I LOVE soup.  This time of year I could eat it every day.  When I saw this recipe come across my Facebook newsfeed, I knew it was a must try!  It has a fairly simple ingredient list and is a simple process.  However, instead of using zucchini I used celery and instead of sausage links I used ground sausage.  It turned out wonderfully!  The sausage and cheesy pasta make in delicious and filling.  Another great thing about it is that, even though I knew my picky 5 year old wouldn’t eat it I was just able to pick out some of the tortellini and he gobbled it right up.  No need to make something different for him or listen to him complain about being hungry.  A win for us all!
